This article aims to explore unmarried marriage services in Gorontalo. The study uses qualitative methods with a descriptive approach. The results of the study show that: (1) the widespread practice of marriage is not recorded in Gorontalo due to the availability of unregistered marriage services that are easy to access and not clandestine; (2) as for services not recorded easily and extensively in the background of several factors, namely; economics, culture, law, education, social, etc., this phenomenon leaves one problem that must be solved, namely the need to reconstruct a non-simplistic understanding of marriage. (3) Marriage must be returned to the essence of Islamic law. An epistemological problem that leaves a simplistic view of marriage must be reconstructed, so that there is no longer a view that Islamic marriage is merely a contract to legalize husband and wife relations that are more biologically nuanced. Support and awareness of all elements of the community are needed to further realize the sacred values ​​of maqashid al-sharia.
